My 9 year old can tell stories like crazy. Putting them on paper at school is a whole different ballpark for him! He struggles with topics. For his 4 th grade writing journal we put pictures of his interests and hobbies on the notebook and covered it with contact paper.
Now if he gets stuck, he can look at the photos and get his stories going! We used pictures of his dogs, brother, cousins, and favorite hobbies like fishing and interests like football and wrestling. Hopefully it will help!
"I think I know what we are going to do today Mom"
I am a mother of two rambunctious boys ages 9 and 2. I also have a chronic autoimmune disease which has changed my life around. I cannot do the things I used to. I do not want my kids to feel like they miss out on things. We have been using Pinterest frequently. It is a treasure chest of inspiration. We pin and pin and pin! Then they sit there....on the bulletin board. These great creative ideas that scream at me and make me desire to be more creative! I think I can do that! I cannot do a lot of things but I can do some things! I just have to change some! I am not working currently due to the disease. This summer I want to make fun! I want it to be one they remember! So...our goal is to take one of the creative ideas we have pinned a day and complete it. A pin a day. This can be a little one, a big one, just something to break up the summer days and do things that we normally would not! We can do it! These ideas are from the creative minds on pinterest and we hope you enjoy them! 86 days of Summer!!!
